  1. The question isn’t if the envelope can fend off Video on Demand. It cannot — VOD will kill by-mail rentals. The question is just when.

    That said, I’m a user of Netflix, more or less a fan, and I look forward to seeing how their VOD practice competes.

  2. the vod user data from cable guys shows that the mass market adoption is not here … yet! hopefully soon. as someone just remarked, the snail mail is trumping the broadband delivery for now.

  3. Rising fuel costs my just be VOD’s ace in the hole. Snail mail is just going to keep getting more and more expensive even as bits/second keep getting cheaper and cheaper. The crossover point certainly seems like it will be within the next 5 years.
